I don't just throw a sign in your yard, put it in the Multiple Listing System and hope for the best.
Unfocused marketing techniques, weak negotiation skills, sloppy pricing methods and careless contract prep can cost you tens of thousands of dollars. That is why it is imperative you make sure you have a qualified Real Estate Agent working for you.
My Comprehensive Web Strategy for Marketing your Home starts by syndicating your listing to hundreds of portals, not just zillow, trulia, realtor.com. For more information on my listing strategy please see the bottom of this page.
The best way to decide on what you need to do to get ready to sell your house, is to put yourself in the shoes of a potential buyer who will be visiting your home for the first time. A buyer’s first impression is based on his or her view of the house from the real estate agent’s car. Take a good look at your house from across the street and see how it compares with nearby houses. Stage your house to inspire buyers so that they will not only see themselves living in your house, but so that they will really want to live there.
Many Sellers start the selling process with an opinion on the asking price of their home. Often, not always, the price the Seller is thinking of is not realistic. If the listing price is set too high, potential buyers may be deterred from considering your home. It has been proven that the closer to your home is to fair market value when it is listed the more likely it will sell quicker and for more money. My Home Valuation tool below is a great place to start
